Who is Mike Wieringo?

Michael Lance “Mike” Wieringo (June 24, 1963 – August 12, 2007), who often signed his work Ringo, is an American comics artist best known for his work on DC Comics’ The Flash, Marvel Comics’ Fantastic Four, and his co-creation Tellos.

Most of all, Mike thought good comics were entertaining and innovative. If you could hold his attention and delight and intrigue his artistic sensibilities at the same time, he’d shout your name from the rooftops. And, if it turned out you were a decent, nice person to boot, he’d be your friend for life.”

– Matt Wieringo
